STEPS FROM KONA COAST'S BEST SNORKELING AND DOLPHINS

Kealakekua Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Located at peaceful Kealakekua Bay, a small, quiet, low-key shoreline community. Walk the length of a football field to the beach. It is an ideal retreat for one or two couples. Only steps to enter the crystal clear water at the palm shaded beach, across from the Captain Cook Monument, for the best snorkeling in the islands. Pristine Kealakekua Bay is a protected marine preserve and underwater park providing numerous water activities and spinner dolphin sightings (and whales in winter). Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy. The home is a new superbly crafted tropical luxurious pole and beam design showcasing natural woods, Italian floor tile, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, new tropical furnishings and a ten jet spa tub. There are large indoor and outdoor walk-in tile showers. Entrance lock box with key and security code for easy check-in and out.

Free Secured Wireless internet access . Free local and unlimited long distance calls to US mainland and Canada.

Ocean water temperatures range consistently from 75 (in Feb) to 82 (in late summer).

Great vacation rental

My wife and I have been to Hawaii many times and rented condos and vacation rentals. This is the best furnished vacation rental we have rented, and at a fantastic location, just a few hundred yards from Manini beach, on Kealakedua Bay. The upstairs apartment has excellent architecture and construction and is well maintained. Many nice amentities, including beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, boogie board, washer and dryer, and outdoor shower with hot water.

Aloha Dennis,
Hale Lana was beyond our expectations even though we had read every other guest review. You have done a beautiful and imaginative job creating a lovely home away from home. Your attention to a welcoming environment and cleanliness was much appreciated. This was Nancy's first trip to Hawaii and Hale Lana played a major role in making it a wonderful experience. We both enjoyed the fact that Hale Lana is located in a friendly neighborhood away from the tourist bustle. What a gem!

This was our second year to stay upstairs at Hale Lana (and we'll probably schedule many more visits in the years ahead. Initially, we were concerned about the tsunami damage at nearby Manini Beach, but Mother Nature often has a way of changing things for the better. Instead of the sharp lava rocks and coral to challenge your bare feet, there is now a gentle SANDY slope into the ocean. The fish were just as plentiful as last year, and the coral seems healthier. We were able to snorkel almost every day either at Manini Beach or Two-Step (4 miles away). (By the way, the local people did an amazing job of cleaning up the tsunami damage and Dennis was instrumental in providing new palm trees and plants to replace the ones swept away. Many thanks to all of you who helped).

We appreciate the cleanliness and attention to detail at Hale Lana and our stay of 9 + days was very enjoyable, except for three days of construction noise from nearby houses being repaired from tsunami damage. We woke up to the sound of jackhammers and the "beep-beep-beep" of equipment backing up instead of the sounds of the ocean! Hopefully that will be finished soon.

This property is well worth the cost of the stay. We can highly recommend it to anyone who likes to snorkel or swim, doesn't mind being off the beaten path, and can climb a flight of stairs.

Thanks, Dennis, for making this beautiful place available. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Aloha Russ and Lloy,
Mahalo for taking the time to post your comments and glad you enjoyed Hale Lana and the great snorkeling again this year. We are humbled to have our beach and little community almost fully restored after some damage from the tsunami from Japan and sorry for the construction noise (although music to our ears). The organized community effort was amazing to see as well....past visitors and everyone here deeply loves the marine preserve of Kealakekua Bay and were glad to pitch in, with many spending days "on the job". Although close to the water, we are fortunate that Hale Lana is on a rise and higher in elevation and out of harm's way. The beach really is actually better, sandy, more beautiful, expansive and open and all the more precious to us!
Mahlo nui loa, Dennis

A well designed, well equipped, and well maintained property in a excellent location that is very reasonably priced. While a car is essential, this is a great spot to explore the southern half of the Big Island. Would book the whole house next time and bring our adult children.

Notes:
The high open ceilings, roof cupola, decking and louvred transoms are reminiscent of a boat.

There are ample lanais and patios to relax in sun or shade while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean and surrounding mountain. It is located in the center of Kona coffee and macadamia nut farms and mills as well as country stores and fruit stands offering locally grown produce. Also nearby are the old 'Painted Church' (wall murals), Hawaiian Ethnobotanical Garden and a wonderful ornate Buddhist Temple open to visitors. Wireless internet access. Not suitable for small children.
